Alex Iwobi is satisfied with his performance for Everton against Fulham on Sunday and eager to continue his good form.
Iwobi was drafted to the right wing-back position and turned out to be one of the best players on pitch for the Toffees at Craven Cottage as the ended their poor run of results with a 3 – 2 win.
Speaking to Everton TV, the 24-year-old vowed to give everything for the Club, regardless of where he plays.
“I am a forward-thinking player, I like to get on the ball and express myself,” said Iwobi.
“We were able to do that quite freely in the first half and had a lot of joy.
“We were very good going forward and created a lot of threats and chances.
“I played right wing-back a couple of times with Arsenal, they wanted me to bomb on and, like I was doing in the first half at Fulham, get crosses in and run down the line with the ball.
“It is not something I have done a lot but anywhere I am told to play, I try to do my best.
“Ben [Godfrey] and James [Rodriguez] and Doucs [Doucoure] were talking to me and made it more comfortable.
“Sometimes, with my defensive position, I wouldn’t know where to be but with them helping and talking it was a lot easier.
“I will take the positives but there are still things I have to learn if I am going to play in this position, especially defensively.
“At least, for me, playing right wing-back, the manager has in his mind, I can play anywhere on the left and right and in the middle.
“Anywhere he wants me to play, I will be able to do that job. And wherever I am playing I will give 100 per cent for the Club.”
Against Fulham, Iwobi played all 90 minutes and he supplied five crosses, he also had his team’s best pass completion rate (87.5 percent) and struck more accurate long balls (five) than any out field colleague.
